The No Bucket WOD

Weather: 2 days removed from Hurricane Dorian. Low 80s, clear, dry.

Apx. once per quarter YHC/QIC enjoys taking the Q at F3 Grandstrand’s neighboring (and progressive) region F3 Republic and their #HIM. YHC figured that with their AOs being closed 2 days due to Dorian (similar to F3GS) that the Pax were itching for a stout bootcamp. YHC was going stir crazy as well eating way too many Hurricane comfort snacks that the M bought for this one – and by the looks of our stash – the whole 2019 hurricane season! The objective of the morning at the #Anvil was a you vs. you, a set list of #crowdpleaser exercises, intermittent partner work, Kettle Bells (courtesy of OC), yes…bells make everything better, a sandbag and I guess some light running on the #weinke. In order to cajole my fleet footed friend Goldberg out this morning, YHC also had to leave the bucket back at the beach. 11 Pax showed up for a bucket-less beatdown and YHC was ready to oblige!

Date of Beatdown:

 Rainbird (1×R), Blacktop, Won-Ton, Mudslide, Hoedown, Hong Kong Fuey, Runoff (AOQ), GoodCents (3rd FQ), Goldberg (Weasel Shaker), Grasspatch (Nan'tan), and YHC.

 One-minute warning, welcome to F3, mission and disclaimer.

Entire workout was done in the AO parking lot.

Warm Up:
IC 15 – 20 reps. of SSHs, TTTs, Imperial Walkers, LBAC forwards & back, and overhead presses.

The Thang That Surely Happened:
 Segment 1:
Each Pax completes the entire list 4 times; however, exercise sets could be broken down done in any order.

25 Merkins
25 4-ct Flutter Kicks
12 Burpees
25 Jump Squats (w/ 2 hands touching the ground before ea. jump)
30Y Bearcrawl
10 BBSU (strict form w/ partner assist)
20 Kettle Bell swings with either 30, 40 or 50# bell
Either 30Y Partner Carry, 100Y 40# Sandbag Carry or 100Y 60# KB carry.
200M run

Segment 2:
1 round of Mary where each Pax lead an ab/core related exercise apx. 10 reps. IC. YHC wrapped up Mary with "one-up" where Pax paired up challenging each other to an initial number of Merkins, then countering, until a number is settled w/ winner having bragging rights for calling out (w/ no counter) the highest number. For Grasspatch, Blacktop and YHC, an easy 15 became 25, then 30, 35 settling on 40...20 more than our already smoked shoulders could muster -- lol.

Cool down:
YHC lead the Pax through a quick series of cool down stretches.


Circle of Trust:
Count-O-Rama 11
Praise report/Prayer requests: Spoken and unspoken.
